Boulevard Brewing

Good news for people who can’t get their hands on Kansas City beer from Boulevard Brewing, which is part of the growing Duvel Moortgat empire alongside Firestone Walker and Ommegang. Following a busy 2015, Boulevard will continue to grow its territory, announcing that five new states will be added to its distribution map in the coming months. Agreements have been signed with Arizona beer distributor Hensley Beverage Company and Kentucky wholesaler Beer House Distributors. These distributors will start rolling out the full portfolio of Boulevard beers in January.

More from the press release:

“With the addition of six new 1,000-barrel fermentation tanks, plans to expand our distribution territory can become a reality,” said Bobby Dykstra, Vice President of sales for Duvel Moortgat USA. “There has been a strong and persistent demand for Boulevard beers in Arizona for quite some time and Kentucky is seeing an explosion of craft beer excitement. We’re thrilled to bring the taste of the Midwest to these states.”

Craft beer fans in Michigan, Connecticut, Rhode Island, Albany, New York and parts of upstate New York as well as Delaware will also be able to find select Boulevard beers on taps and shelves in early 2016. Distributor agreements are still in the works.

The brewery will publish details on launch events in all of these markets on their website and social media outlets as they are finalized in the weeks and months to come.
